AFC Bournemouth v West Brom

Match preview

West Brom v Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth's Joshua King has a problem with his neck but manager Eddie Howe thinks the Norwegian will be available. 

Ryan Fraser (back) has not fully trained and is doubtful, while Howe says he has "a couple of other niggles" to assess. 

West Bromwich Albion welcome captain Jonny Evans back from illness. 

Gareth Barry (knee) has been ruled out and James Morrison (Achilles) is a doubt. Daniel Sturridge and Nacer Chadli will be back in training next week.

Did you know?

AFC Bournemouth have scored in their last 11 Premier League matches but have only kept one clean sheet in that time, conceding in 16 of their last 17 outings in total.

After an unbeaten run of seven PL matches, the Cherries are now winless in their last four (D2 L2), with both of those defeats by a 4-1 scoreline.

Four of West Bromwich Albion's five PL goals against AFC Bournemouth have been scored by defenders: Gareth McAuley (twice), Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi.

West Brom, who beat AFC Bournemouth 1-0 on the opening weekend of the season, could now complete the league double over a team for only the second time in five PL campaigns. They defeated Stoke City twice in 2015/16.
